Video and Photography from the Reel Life Team.
– the videoman – has a lifetime’s
experience in TV & Film, so knows how to unobtrusively create
your story – a bit like a feature film, but on a lot smaller
budget: its your dream come true, but with reality in mind!
offer two levels of DVD:
the difference is only in the editing (the time consuming bit) - the
filming stage is identical. We stay with you all day - or as long as
you want and there is something interesting happening: the camera is in
our hand ready for action all the time - except for a few moments when
we sit down with you to eat! We can even capture you getting ready
before the ceremony, or dancing with your friends in the evening...
DVD cover from video stills
fully edited DVD with as many menus as you want, all sound editing,
music, a personalised cover - just like a TV documentary - full of
action and very entertaining: includes 4 DVD copies so everyone can

photos or highlights of the day, £60 for a personalised cover
from video stills and £100 if you want bits cutting out -
such as repeated verses of hymns, or anything else that makes it boring
for the viewer, or simply trimming the individual edit prints so it
works better (lots of hard work for us though....). £100 too
for smooth transitions between cuts. You get one copy of the DVD
with extra copies being £50 each.
This way, you can
choose what you want within your budget, without sacrificing the
quality of the footage. There's
no charge for travel or VAT to pay.
(If you were to have all of the above options you would then only need
to add on £60 for sound balancing, and £40 for
colour balancing, and £200 for story telling, using a
selection of material shot, re-arranged to turn it into a more
entertaining documentary, rather than a simple record, to arrive at the
same stage as version 1, so you have a fully personalised finish within
your control, paying only for the features that suit your personal
